Ann Abel, a contributor on Forbes.com is a travel enthusiast with a close eye on countries and cities to plan for your next vacations. She has made a list of 10 coolest places to visit in 2019 based on experts opinion at several high-end travel companies. These experts have given their opinion based on scenic beauty, prices, hospitality etc.

Here (in alphabetical order) is what on their radar for next year.

  1. The Azores (Portugal)
  2. Eastern Bhutan
  3. Cabo/Los Cabos (Mexico)
  4. Colombia
  5. Ethiopia
  6. Madagascar
  7. Mongolia
  8. Pakistan
  9. Rwanda
  10. The Turkish Riviera

The reason why Pakistan gets 8th spot and is included in the list is because:

“Explore the valleys of Hunza, Shigar and Khaplu via the renowned Karakoram Highway,” suggests Sara Barbieri, another specialist with GeoEx. “This little-visited region in the far northeast of the country offers the kind of startlingly striking scenery that compels you to gaze from the window of your 4WD without blinking, for fear of missing a moment of the majesty of the landscape—or one of the astounding suspension bridges that cross the surging rivers filled with snow melt.

Add to this the warm welcome of the people, the glacial blue of Attabad lake, the centuries of history, the juxtaposition of granite to greenery, the chance to walk through an age old-apricot orchard along water channels cut by hand, and the blazing snow-covered glory of Rakiposhi, and you must acknowledge there is a grand adventure to be had.”
